Black Christmas

Black Christmas

Directed by Bob Clark

During a festive Yuletide party, a group of sorority sisters receive a creepy call from someone who claims he’s going to kill them all. The girls soon realize the threats were serious, when one by one, they each fall prey to the mysterious maniac. After directing two relatively ignored horror flicks which later became cult classics (CHILDREN SHOULDN’T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS & DEATHDREAM), a Christmas miracle made Bob Clark’s 1974 classic a hit. A huge influence on John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN, BLACK CHRISTMAS is frequently credited with helping spawn the slasher subgenre.

This horror classic about a killer stalking sorority girls on Xmas helped spawn the slasher genre.

Cast: Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder

Fucking splendid and better by half than most of its descendants. Even with all of the humor, the cold dread it leaves you with is pitch-perfect.

Painfully slow, but gets better as it goes along. Good ending

Legitimately unsettling, especially for such an old movie, yet it still has the fun slasher feel.
